More fun than a ball or a pogo stick
April 20, 2007
I bought this for my son. Picture a ball stuck through a hard plastic disc. You have to stand on the disc, balance, grip your feet around the ball and jump… all at the same time.
It is really really difficult. Much more difficult that I thought it would be. Though now that I am describing it I am wondering why I thought it would be easy.
I am here to warn you that should you be foolhardy enough to try this “Pogo Hopper” yourself, don’t do it in your front yard and with your children watching.
Because you will fall and land sprawled out on your face. If you happen to get a few jumps in before the fall you will also pee your pants.
Not that I know this from personal experience.
I am leaving the post up for Heather and the comments open for the week. The drawing for all the fabulous, and I do mean fabulous, things people have donated will be at the end of next week. This way people will have time to donate if they haven’t been able to yet.
I am finalizing some of the donations and waiting for a few emails to be returned. Then I’ll have the post up chock full of links and wonderful giving people.
And I am going to go outside and try to enjoy the non-snowy, non-rainy weather. My Vitamin D stores are sorely depleted.
